The demand continues to increase as the supply of available bandwidth is both shrinking and becoming more congested. As a result, pre-planning and wireless frequency coordination are becoming more important, particularly as the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) is preparing to sell off more of the UHF spectrum where the majority of wireless microphones and monitoring systems operate (currently 470-698… View this story
